states, wisconsin, ohio and iowa, the states that romney needs to kind of gain ground on. >> wisconsin really opens up possibilities. without wisconsin, it's looking very hard, particularly the way things are looking in ohio, so many other swing states. if he can get florida or wisconsin, he has a path. >> greta: those were nice ads. no one is said to be a rot and horrible person, a thief or crook. it was a nice ad. >> that's the point. the country hasn't decided that it doesn't like barack obama. it may not vote for him again, but even people that -- pretty strong partisan, a lot of folks say they like him generally, and certainly people that voted for him four years ago you're not going to convince him he's all the evil things that some of the ads say he is. >> the 47% video that came out last, campaig romney talking abt campaign strategy, he said they were having a tough time selling a vilified version of barack obama to former voters, so they wanted to hammer the idea of disappointment, disenchantment. you saw that in this ad. >> romney said that at the convention in tampa. the cle
edge. polls in swing states showing president obama pulling ahead of governor mitt romney, but not so fast. dick morris, author of new book "here come the black helicopters" has something to say about the polls. he joins us. nice to see you, dick. dick, you may be perhaps the only one who's saying that these polls suggest that governor romney is winning. please tell me how you arrive at that. >> sure. well, karl rove i think has some thoughts like that. let me go through it. what's going on now is these polls are assuming that you have the same high level of african american, latino and young people vote in 2012 that you had in 2008. not the normal level, which you had in '04, '00, '06 and so on. the pollsters are awaiting the data to assume you have that level. so, for example, in 2008, 14% of the vote was cast by african americans. in 2004, in all the other years, only 11% was. in 2010, only 11% was. so what the pollsters is doing is weighting up the number of black interviews, giving them more weight so that they account for 14% of the sample, not 11%. for young people, they histor
